We Are Going On A Long Leave

Short GoodbyeThere come many opportunities in a person’s life when they can choose to follow their hearts or continue living in fears and insecurities of the mind. We (Geetha and I) have passed through quite a few and perhaps there lie a few more ahead of us. Most of the times, our choice was of the heart but once in a while we let our fears cloud us and keep us in the same of loop of suffering. We are once more at one such juncture in our lives.

This time the choice was unhesitating and simultaneous for both of us. Now, we’ve both come to a clear realization that further and truer healing cannot happen with conventional therapy but rather through a deeper introspection and awareness. And stepping into pure present moment awareness means we cannot avoid stepping into the unknown that follows it immediately. And to do that we realized we simply have to put in more faith into the life within and trust it to take care of us. And we are doing that. We are going away together to explore and experiment in deeper and truer healing. And, as usual with our lives so far, the experiment is first on us. We didn’t have to go away to let this healing happen, but the moment the realization to heal deeper came for us the universe opened doors for a perfect space to heal!

As a result, we are both taking a long sabbatical and we are closing Purple Room Healing for the public. The leave is for at least six months. The blog and all its articles will still be available for you all. We are also opening a site and another blog to share our onward (and inward) journey and to write about the practice of awareness. We will announce them here soon once we have made the physical transition to our new home and personal healing space.

Thank you all clients and friends who made this journey with us. We learnt a lot from each of you and we hope each of you had equally benefited through the help we could extend.

Self Abuse: The Most Rampant Core Issue

Self acceptance can be the root of most problems, if not all, in life!
Self acceptance can be the root of most problems, if not all, in life!

Try this simple exercise: Stand before a mirror. Looking at your image in the mirror and ask yourself if you can genuinely say yes to the following questions:

Can you completely accept the person you see in the mirror with all the person’s faults and limitations?
Can you absolutely forgive the person in the mirror for all the sins and mistakes in the person’s past?
Can you love that person unconditionally?
Can you approve that person’s behavior and personality?

If you genuinely try this exercise a few times you will realize it difficult to say yes from the bottom of your heart to all of the above questions.

But try this exercise again with a small change.

If the person in the mirror was someone you love, say your child, you wouldn't have trouble accepting, forgiving, and loving the person!
If the person in the mirror was someone you love, say your child, you wouldn’t have trouble accepting, forgiving, and loving the person!

Imagine that person in the mirror to be your brother, sister, a parent, a child, your best friend, or someone you love very much. Now ask the same questions above. You will notice you can now actually say yes to all of them quite easily and willingly.

Now look at the person in the mirror again and answer this following question:

How many times have you scolded or disapproved of that person for something or the other on the past?
How many times have you become angry with that person in the past?
If you verbalized your disapproval and anger you showed at yourself to another person say your brother, sister, a parent, a child, a friend or someone you love very much, would it not constitute abuse? Would it not be such worst abuse that you become legally punishable?

The answer in most cases is an ashamed yes.

Think back to all the times you hated yourself and shouted at yourself and you will know the answer for yourself.

We all carry an inner critic – a hard-to-please, strict disciplinarian. There is no pleasing this critic. The problem is in attempting it. Sometimes we hear it as the voice of our parent in our head, sometimes it is the voice of a neighbor, a peer, a boss, spouse, and at other times it is just our voice. We can forgive others for their shortcomings easily but we always are unforgiving perfectionists when it comes to ourselves. And that paves the shortest route to ruin and suffering.

Self Abuse is the most rampant of all issues and unless we can each learn to deal with our opinion of ourselves everything we do in our daily lives will only increase our insecurities.

Do the mirror exercise every day. Simply stand before the mirror and say that you accept the person in the mirror, forgive that person, affirm that you love that person, and approve of that person. Keep doing it until you can do it without any inner hesitation or emotions blocking you.

There are so many versions of mirror exercises out there in the web. In spite of the variations, the goal is same, absolute self-acceptance.

How would you know you have accepted yourself? When you notice you are no longer abusing yourself with mental, verbal, and physical self-destructive behavior. The day you stop chiding yourself for every small thing in your life, you have truly reached a state of self-acceptance. That day you will also notice a dramatic change in the way people around you treat you.

When people approach me for Hypnotherapy or Reiki Healing for any issue, this is one of the most common exercises we ask them to do. Self image is the area where most often root causes are revealed in regression sessions.

Past Life Regression Therapy: Client and Therapist Responsibilities

We have seen in the last two posts on Past Life Regression Therapy on how past life regression works and explored some of the root causes that crop up in past life therapy. Now let us look at the responsibilities of a past life regression therapist as well as the client in order to make Past Life Regression a successful therapeutic session.

Role of Past Life Regression Therapist

Though the clinical training and experience of the therapist are the most important factors, let us assume the client has made necessary enquiries in that area (See ‘How to find a good Hypnotherapist?’ for more). Coming to the session itself, the foremost role of the therapist is in pre-talk. Pre-talk is a consultation session where the past life therapist explains to the client how the therapy works as well as clears misconceptions about past life regression therapy. Most clients have many expectations and opinions about past life regression. If the client had not attended any past life sessions, then most of the expectations and opinions would have been created by the media as well as their religious and cultural background. Some opinions could simply be false. It is the role of the therapist to find out these expectations and set them right if necessary.

What many therapists end up doing in pre-talk is making a sales pitch – which creates even more expectations in the client’s head. The misconceptions remain. Creating an expectation towards healing is necessary, but creating expectations about the therapeutic process itself can become counter-productive sometimes.

There are other responsibilities of the therapist, but discussing them here will only create a client to become analytical during the session, thus again creating a block to a successful past life regression session.

Role of the Client in Past Life Regression Therapy

The client’s responsibility is an important determinant for a successful past life regression therapy.

One of the biggest obstacles towards a successful past life regression therapy is excitement and anticipation on the part of the client. What with so many television channels having hyped up past life regression therapy through their programs, lot of excitement has been generated for this therapy. Clients want to ‘experience’ past life more than having their issues resolved. There are clients who want only past life regression because they are sure the root causes to their problems are from a past life. Some of them are true, some are simply excited.

The most important expectation for a client should be resolution of their problem, rather than having to ‘see’ their past lives. Anticipation about who they could have been in their past life can produce false memories. That would simply be a wasted session without any concrete progress towards actual therapy. Excitement can also cause the client to regress nowhere. They simply hit a blank wall.

There is a simple way to move away from anticipation and excitement. Put your focus on the actual goal of the past life therapy – which is solving a problem in the current life. Do that and you will make easy progress.

More on Past Life Regression Therapy

In the last post we have seen how Past Life Regression Therapy works. Now let’s explore root causes. As I said, past life regression is done for the purpose of pinpointing the root cause to the problem and resolving it. Root causes are unique to each problem and person. However, they can be broadly classified based on the consequences they cause.

Some root causes create karmic debts. By karma, most people seem to think it is some kind of punishment or tit-for-tat situation. That depends on our perspective. As long as we see karma as punishment, we cannot get out of the situation nor accept it fully. But karma is also an opportunity to learn. Think of it this way – a school student can see his learning process as a grueling torture or as an opportunity to learn something new. The perspective alters their experience. And if you notice, unless the learning is completed, we will only repeat similar experiences that also worsen with each repetition. The worsening part is due to our increasing frustration and

In some past life therapy sessions, we get root causes that have become emotional triggers, meaning they are incidents of emotional trauma that become associated with strong reactions in us, and every time similar situation occurs in our current lives it triggers off same strong reactions. Shortly put, it is a strong emotional habit. For instance, many psychosomatic diseases like asthma, stress-based psoriasis, etc. are triggered in similar ways. Physical reactions are caused by cellular memories. Each cell of our body seems to have a capacity to hold limited memory in the way of physical reactions like pain or other dysfunctions. Whenever a strong emotional situation occurs the simultaneous reactions of the body are deeply etched into the cellular memories. And when similar emotions are evoked, the cells throw up the physical reactions. Hence, the cases where people who have died of drowning in the past seem to have asthmatic attacks in face of severe threat (both physical and mental) to their survival.

Some past life regressions root causes are oaths, vows, and contracts. We sometimes feel so strongly about something or someone that we enter into very strong contracts or take serious oaths. These seem to have their effects carried into our future lives until we revoke them consciously.

In the next post we shall look at requirements for a successful past life regression therapy both in terms of therapist and the client’s responsibilities.

How does a Past Life Therapy work?

Past Life Therapy has become quite popular these days because of its recent promotion in the television. As a hypnotherapist many clients call me just for Past Life Regression. Initiated in India by ‘Raaz Pichle Janam Ka’ in Hindi, it was later remade into many regional languages including Mun Jenmam in Tamil. The therapists all over the metros started getting enquiries about past life regression including in Chennai. But how does a Past Life Regression Therapy work?

There is a general assumption that by recalling past life memories, we see the roots of current life problems and hence it helps us resolve the problem from its core. The assumption is true but let us go into it in more detail.

When a client undergoes past life regression, there is always a goal (obvious…but is it?) – to resolve a problem in the current life. The stress on goal is important because some times, in the excitement of ‘seeing’ past life memories, the clients can tend to become enthusiastic about therapy itself than the goal, which will only lead to waste of money and time.

So a client is regressed to those past life memories which are the root cause for current life’s problems. The problem could be a phobia, a relationship issue (marital problems, parent child relationship), resentment or jealousy issues, sexuality issues, certain physical conditions (Psychosomatic diseases), etc.

The therapeutic goal of a Past Life Regression is not to make the client ‘relive’ the memories and trauma but to simply find what the real problem is. You see, when a client comes with a problem to be resolved, a therapist never sees that as a problem but as a symptom for a root problem.

Think of it this way. You approach a doctor with fever, headache and other symptoms. The doctor would never give you a paracetamol; in fact, you would have gone to a doctor after having tried your own medication. The doctor’s goal is to find out what’s causing the fever and other symptoms in the first place.

The same is the case here. The client is having the current problem as a symptom of a deeper root cause. Sometimes those roots may lie in past lives. Hence the diagnostic tool Past Life Regression Therapy. Just like the doctor may find a malarial parasite or some virus as a cause for the symptoms, past life regression will help you find the root problem. Once the root cause is found, the client needs to focus their attention on it. For this root cause is the reason why the client is having certain problems in current life.

Past Life Therapy is not just a great diagnostic tool it is also a powerful therapeutic technique. Once the root cause is found one of the two things happen; in some cases the problem comes down by itself. The mind works out the solution as soon as the root cause is recalled. There is a certain ‘automatic release’ that happens as soon as the root cause becomes apparent to the subconscious. This can be seen in cases of phobias or psychosomatic diseases mostly, though I have seen such results even in cases of relationship and other issues too. The problem may be resolved fully or it may come down to a manageable level.

But do not expect this dramatic change to happen in every case. In other cases, the therapist and the client now work towards resolving the root problem. It may be a few more sessions still before the client starts seeing resolution and positive changes.

In the next article, I will explain about what kind of root causes may come up and also the right mental attitude and other conditions required of the client for a successful past life regression therapy to happen.

How to find a good Hypnotherapist?

Finding a good Hypnotherapist in Chennai or Bangalore or Hyderabad or any other city is not as difficult as you imagine. Just follow simple guidelines so you can be sure you can find a fair playing Hypnotherapist in your city. Click on the article title for more.

It’s been a long while since I wrote a similar article and many things have changed since. So here’s another guide to finding a good Hypnotherapist through online search in your local area.

The most common way we search for Hypnotherapists online is with keywords like Hypnotherapist in Chennai, Bangalore, or other places as necessary. The other method is looking up a local directory for Hypnotherapists or Past Life Regression Therapists in your city.

However, just because a hypnotherapist’s name appears in the top results does not necessarily mean he/she is the best hypnotherapist. It only means the hypnotherapist has got a good Search Engine Optimization (SEO) done. SEO is a set of tools and practises that ensures that your result appears in the first page of Google and other popular search engines. So the task of finding if the hypnotherapist is good enough still remains.

Website and Testimonials: Visiting the website or blog of the hypnotherapist will provide some information about the hypnotherapist but remember the content of the website or blog is always carefully thought out and well written. Mostly not even by the therapist. Testimonials could be of some help but always take them with a pinch of salt.

First Call: Try to talk with the therapist personally. If that is not possible, get an appointment for consultation and meet the therapist before you decide to undergo therapy. Your first impression counts.

Certification: Currently, in India, there are no legal certifications required for one to practise Hypnotherapy. However, a certification from a well-standing institute will at least make sure the hypnotherapist has had a formal training in both theory and practise of Hypnotherapy.

Experience: Find out how many years of practise he/she’s had. More importantly find out if the therapist has had any experience with issues similar to yours (yes that means you need to tell the therapist about your issue, even if briefly, in the first meeting or call).

Quality Time Spent: A therapist may spend only twenty minutes with you but if those twenty minutes have been spent in listening to your case or in offering sound counselling or therapy then you probably are in good hands. But if the therapist is extremely time-conscious to the point of being rude and ending therapy abruptly at the end of the allotted hour, perhaps you may need to change your therapist. Of course, as a client again, you must discuss your issue clearly and stop at that; not go round in circles repeating the same issue as if you are complaining with your family member. In such cases, therapists usually cuts you off, sometimes rudely too.

Misconception: No hypnotherapist can take your mind under control and extract truths from you. Any therapist claiming to do so is a sham and a liar. Get out of there before he/she proceeds to dish out more lies in order to make money out of you.

Rapport and Trust: The main question here is not if the hypnotherapist is good but if the hypnotherapist is good for you! In Hypnotherapy, as in the case of all successful therapies, the first all important requisite is to have a faith in the therapist. So a hypnotherapist might be have the best credentials, years of experience,  and may have come with best recommendations but if you cannot have faith in her/him or at least a good rapport, get out of that place!

At the end of the day, if you intuitively feel the therapist can heal you, just go ahead even if the therapist is not certified, or doesn’t have previous experience. Trust your intuition! For a hypnotherapist is always a guide, the actual healing is done by your subconscious.

Spirits that come for Forgiveness

Spirits that come for forgiveness during past life regression sessions are not spirits that are attached to clients. They come because it is time for their release through forgiveness.


Spirit Release Therapy

In my practise of past life regressions, I have sometimes come across spirits that come during the sessions to seek forgiveness from my clients. In all of these cases, the spirits had not been attached to my client previously. They usually come when the client visits the relevant past life and they ask for forgiveness for their behaviour in the past.

In one such case, the client recollected a past life where he was a princely heir of a European line of kings. He saw himself being stabbed to death by his wife. Immediately after he visited the past life, he found himself face to face with the spirit of his former wife. The client was quite disconcerted but the woman simply said she had come for forgiveness which my client readily did. She said she still desired to be his wife in a future incarnation and that she would wait for him in the light. She left to the light afterward that.

There are times when the client starts spontaneously recalling a past life the moment he is under hypnosis. Usually this happens when the subconscious of the client has an important problem to be resolved immediately. But in one such case, it was not the client’s subconscious that ‘threw’ up the memory of a past life but it was a spirit. The client in this case was taken to a traumatic past life where he had been violently hacked to death. The client could only see fragments of the past. He had been a poor kid living in a slum and all the client could remember was the violent death and the face of the perpetrator – a cruel looking man in his forties.

I moved the client away from the past life because he was obviously experiencing the trauma once more. Immediately client saw himself facing the spirit of the cruel looking man. The spirit carried a sword in his hand. It was the same sword that the man had used to hack the child to death. My client became so upset and angry that I had to bring him out of the session without releasing the spirit of the cruel man.

But that night my client dreamt of the cruel man and it was quite disturbing for him. The client fixed an immediate appointment with me the next day. I explained to him that it is important to release spirit attachments once they show themselves and the dreams had been because the spirit of the cruel man had not been released. My client agreed reluctantly to talk to the spirit.

I induced hypnosis and directed the client into a guided imagery session. He pictured entering the garden he had visited in an earlier session. There he found the cruel man waiting for my client. Initially the client reacted angrily and started challenging the spirit. Challenge could lead to flaring of egos and the case could only get unnecessarily complicated. I reasoned with my client. He calmed down and asked the cruel man what he wanted. The man immediately threw his sword down and begged for forgiveness. He told my client that he had suffered much due to his guilt and regret over his ghastly deed.

My client was reluctant to forgive the man. Usually most clients readily forgive or let go of past life issues and attachments. But in this case, my client had become upset over the brutality of the murder and was still sore over it.

I asked my client to call upon his spirit guides. He saw Jesus and another guide come into the garden. My client asked for their advice but they said they are leaving the decision entirely to my client. They said they would be okay with any decision my client made. Obviously it was time for my client to learn through his own thought. It is incidents like these that evolve most of the clients to a whole new level of maturity and spiritual growth.

After much thought my client decided to forgive the cruel man and he did it willingly. Not surprisingly, my client felt emotionally relieved on forgiving the cruel man. We helped the man go into the light after that.

Open and Receptive Mind: The First Step towards Healing

The biggest hinderance to resolving issues is our narrow minded approach and defensive behavior.

What would put an end to our problems? How can I heal myself? These questions inevitably plague in our lives minds.

I may not know of a single cure-all solution for all problems of life, mind, body, and soul, but I know for sure what is required to effectively kick-start a healing process, to put us on our path to resolving our problems.

The one essential pre-requisite for healing is an open and receptive mind.

Once we have acknowledged our problems and once we have decided to work on it, we begin to look around for an effective solution for our problem. But we never realize the biggest hinderance to resolving issues is our narrow minded approach and defensive behavior.

All of our issues have roots in the past and it requires an extraordinarily open mind to explore those roots. Sometimes we are presented with theories and connections that appear impossible. Sometimes we are given advice that appears mundane. But if we do not reject those ideas and consider them with a receptive mind, we will find revealing truths and hidden treasures.

Let me give a simple example:
Suppose you are suffering from low self-esteem and your friends tell that most of your thoughts are biased and you see only negative aspects of yourself in every event. Your first instinct is to simply reject that thought.

But if you were to consider the truth in that advice and try to assess it in a real situation, you will find that you are indeed biased in self-assessment. In fact, you have made ‘biased self-assessment’ a framework from which you always operate. And it is from this vantage point that you even reject friend’s advice in the first place.

But by receiving this idea and moving beyond the self-imposed framework, you would have achieved three benefits:

You would have discovered your self-inhibiting framework.
You would have made a correct initial diagnosis for the problem.
And by merely being aware of this framework, you can always reject your first instincts to criticise yourself and re-assess your performance in any event.
Thus you would have started breaking down the problem methodically and effectively.

A decision to be open and receptive, and being watchful in implementing that decision is the most effective and least painful route to healing.

Our issues have roots in the past – Regression Therapy Case Study

All of our issues have roots buried deep in past and Regression Therapy helps uncover and resolve them!

All our issues have origins in our past and what problems we are experiencing today are actually symptoms of those issues. Regression Therapy helps in identifying and dealing with the root events.

Here’s a live case study of how deep some issues may be buried:

This client was around 58 years old and he was having severe panic attacks and negative thoughts when it came to the matter of money and wealth. His mind would always have negative thoughts about money and that started manifesting into panic attacks. He said he was well off with enough properties and assets to keep him and his family secure for the rest of his life.

According to him these negative thoughts started about a couple of years ago when he had a major financial loss and had to close his business. And it had come to such a state that any small change in the state’s political scenario, real estate or stock market and he would have severe negative thoughts about his own wealth. Every month he would fear some new problems would arise and affect his wealth.

Under regression, his issues proved to have roots deeper than his recent financial loss. He regressed to an event when he was 19. Because of some family issues, he had been forced to move out of family business and seek his own financial independence. That was the first root for thoughts about his financial insecurity. A couple of financial issues later in his career cemented his roots and the recent loss brought those thoughts to the surface and started manifesting as panic attacks.

Regression Therapy is a powerful technique that can pinpoint roots related to current issues in life and help deal with them.

What is a Recreational Past Life Session?

Recreational Past Life session is a session where the client is regressed to a past life just for the sake of knowing his past life. There is no therapy involved in these sessions.  Recreational Past Life session is usually asked by clients who are curious to know about their past lives. In such cases, the hypnotherapist regresses the client specifically to a past life that is quite uneventful and that has lessons useful to learn for the current lifetime of the client.

Case Study #1: Karmic Debt of a Housewife

I had a client, a housewife, who came to me to be treated for an unusual emotional issue. She said her problem was that she had become extremely jealous of her husband’s friend and she carried vitriolic hatred against that person. The friend was a male. He and my client’s husband were friends since their school days. My client simply hated this person to come into their house, talk to her husband or even call him on the phone. Her aversion was so strong that she had many arguments and serious fights with her husband over that friend. Her husband refused to let go of his friendship because he felt his wife was unnecessarily making a fuss about nothing. The friend, by the time my client first came to me, was the coming to their house almost three times a week and would spend evenings with my client’s husband.

My first doubt was that my client was very possessive about her husband. So in my pre-interview I tried to gather more details about her family. The interview proved possessiveness was not a factor. My client’s husband also had three or four of old school friends visiting him regularly. A couple of them were also involved in his business and were closer to him than the friend my client was jealous of.

I did a couple of regression sessions for her to find the root cause of the issue in this current lifetime but I was not going anywhere. I found that she was jealous of him from the moment her husband first introduced him before their marriage, which was about 6 years ago. My client also firmly believed that the friend was also feeling the same jealousy and hatred for her; and was deliberately manipulating her husband to make my client even jealous and miserable. Though that seemed more like imagination on the part of my client, as a therapist I could not disregard that possibility. It is of paramount importance that the therapist always remains non-judgmental and open minded at all times.

On the third session we had a surprising turn of events. I varied my induction method and used EET instead of classic hypnosis. EET is a wonderful technique and works very well with clients who do not respond so well to classic hypnosis inductions. After a few rounds of EET I knew my client was in deep hypnosis and I regressed my client. I asked her to go back to the first time she felt jealousy and hatred for this person. My client began to narrate an event that was certainly not from her current lifetime. She saw herself as an obese, dark skinned, middle aged woman of a lower income group. Her husband in her current lifetime was also her husband in that lifetime. She was a meat vendor and her husband did some menial job. One day her husband took in a second wife who was slimmer and prettier. My client recognized this woman as her husband’s friend in her current lifetime. The meat vendor wife became angry with her husband and also felt jealousy for the new prettier wife. She began to take out her anger on this pretty second wife. She ill-treated the younger woman and made use of every opportunity to incite a quarrel between her husband and his second wife.

I guided my client through the entire lifetime and to her death in that lifetime. While she was reviewing her death, she had this feeling that her suffering in this current lifetime would be complete once she knew about the cause.

After the session her life took a surprising turn. Her husband began to avoid his friend. He also began to notice that the friend was deliberately manipulating him to provoke arguments with his wife. My client was right when she said her husband’s friend was manipulative and jealous of her relationship with her husband.

I met my client quite recently, about three months after her therapy sessions with me. She informs it has been more than 40 days since her husband’s friend came to their house. This was a miracle considering the person previously used to visit their house every alternate day. My client also tells me that even when the friend comes she is hardly bothered about him and she treats him politely like she would treat any guest in the house.

What is a Karmic Debt?

A Karmic Debt is an unexpended effect of a cause in a past life. To simply put, a karmic debt is a reaction to an action set in the past but the reaction is not fully over yet. Difficult and trying relationships sometimes can be a result of a karmic debt.

What happens in Past Life Regression Therapy?

Past Life Therapy is similar in its approach and function to normal Hypnotherapy session that involves Age Regression (directing a client back to his past). Only difference is that in a regular Age Regression the roots for a client’s issues are looked for in his own lifetime – usually in his childhood; whereas in Past Life Regression Therapy the client is directed beyond his current lifetime to his past lives looking for the roots of current life issue. Sometimes there can be more than one past life involved and the therapist looks for the first lifetime where the current life issue first began.

Once the root of the issue is found the healing begins and healing is very similar as that in Age Regression therapy. The therapist moves from event to event, guiding the therapist to resolve each issue starting from the first triggering event which is called Initial Sensitizing Event or ISE. The following events that added to the current issue in the client’s life are called Subsequent Sensitizing Events (SSE). Once the ISE and SSE are all resolved the issue in the client’s current lifetime disappears.

What is the difference between Age Regression and Past Life Regression?

In Age Regression the client is directed to past events of her own lifetime whereas in Past Life Regression the client is directed back to her past lives in search of the roots of the current issue that the client wants resolved.

What is Age Regression?

Age Regression is process of regressing or directing a client back into his own lifetime searching for the root of the issue – the first incident that triggered the issue that the client has come to be treated for. Age Regression is used when the client is in Hypnosis.

Are Past Lives true?

Whether a client is really experiencing a past life or not, when you deal with the events that the client is narrating the problem of the client in the current lifetime vanishes!

Let me explain how I view the concept of past lives. There are times in our practice of hypnotherapy when we regress (taking a client back into their past memories) a client, she starts reliving a memory that does not belong to her current lifetime. The client begins to talk of a time, place and events that seem to have occurred way back in the past. It may really be a past life of the client or the subconscious mind may be reeling out a metaphoric dream in place of an actual event.

But the trauma and the intensity of emotions and the body sensations that the client is experiencing at the moment are all too real. As a Hypnotherapist, my job is not to verify the existence of past lives at that moment but to treat the events as real and guide the client to deal with the issues.

And the truth is that once we deal with the event that the client is undergoing, the problem in her current life vanishes.

However, an interesting phenomenon is that sometimes the client recalls the events of another lifetime complete with the names, places and dates – which makes the recall verifiable. And personally, I have seen such lifetimes verified and proven true! These were details that a client had never come across in her lifetime and were instantly recalled under hypnosis.

Whether it is a past life or not, the client’s issue is instantly healed and her life changes for the better! Also many times, recall of such events often provide a client with so much insight and strength to deal with her current lifetime.

What is Past Life Therapy?

As the name indicates it is a therapeutic modality that is based on the concept that issues in this life have roots in our past lives. This therapy is usually used after the client has been hypnotized. But there are non-hypnotic past life modalities too.
